Yes, but all of those are server type applications. I'd bet that even MS's
big time lawyers would have an extremely hard time justifying most of their
EULA in court.

This comes down to that same part of MS's EULA that makes people think that
it's illegal to run VNC or PcAnywhere on NT, Win2K, or WinXP (home or pro).
Which I don't think it is. Plus, if MS ever brought a lawsuit against
someone that was using one of those products they'd be taking a major hit in
the monopoly arena.

Even AutoCAD's EULA has some "fuzzy" wording that makes it a violation to
run Acad in a terminal server environment, but they'd still have a really
hard time enforcing it. 1) Because of the way it's worded and 2) as long as
you could prove that you only had 1 person for each license accessing the
server, there isn't much they can do. Why would they want to, they've
already gotten their money?

it.
